EMI Reduction Methods in Wireless Power Transfer System for Drone Electrical Charger using Tightly-coupled Three-phase Resonant Magnetic Field

Wireless power transfer (WPT) technology is a promising way for convenient and safe battery charging without any electrical contact, which may cause an unwanted electric spark or deliver dangerous electric current to the users. When transferring power from the source to the battery, strong electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are generated. Moreover, the inverter output contains a wide range of harmonics. Therefore, it is important to reduce the EMFs and electromagnetic interference (EMI) in a WPT system. For the first time, in this paper, we propose a new tightly coupled three-phase resonant magnetic field (TC-TPRMF) charger for a drone operating at 60 kHz, which can completely eliminate the third harmonic and its integer multiples in the output voltage. Furthermore, to reduce the selective EMI, the conduction angle control is proposed for the WPT charging system. Through a series of measurements, we verified that the proposed TC-TPRMF with the conduction angle control can reduce the seventh and 11th harmonics of the Tx current by 6.08 and 11.84 dBμA, respectively. The coil-to-coil power transfer efficiency and total system power transfer efficiency are maintained at 91% and 72%, respectively.
